Actually she doesn't look scared. She looks ... blank to me.
It's weird/sad that her parents weren't there in court. I wonder what kind of relationship they had before all this, like did they have a shit relationship that was bad enough to make her scared about what they would do if they found out. Or was it the opposite -- they had a great relationship and she couldn't handle disappointing them?
Neither would justify her behavior, but still.
you have to have something drastically wrong with you to even consider killing as an option when there at least 1 other that doesn't involve murder. i wouldn't have killed a baby at age 14 under any circumstance, just as i wouldn't have done it at age 2, 6 or 11 and probably won't 10 years from now.
I didn't even like to kill spiders when I was little.
i'd be curious to know if anyone on MDS has ever killed anyone. 'cause my guess is no.
I can't quote but as far as discussing reproductive issues with minors, it varies from state to state and whether the parent is with the child.
I prepped a 16yr old for tonsil surgery. She peed in a cup for a pregnancy test, in order to be cleared for X-ray. She was apprehensive about peeing in the cup, but for some reason I though she was trying to hide weed use or something.
Anyway, her fucking result came back positive. Since her mom was with her, as her legal guardian, we had to tell the mother directly. OMG, all fucking hell broke loose and she was basically dragged out of there by her hair.
She was back in a week for an abortion.
I have sympathy for her, somewhat, but she's going to have to face what she did and learn the hard way, that there was about 300 different routes she could've taken. I would have never even imagined doing anything like that. And as hard it would have been I'm positive I would've told my mom.
In fact, when I was about 8. I thought you got pregnant from loving someone and kissing. Anyways I swore I loved a classmate named George and he kissed me (on the cheek) a few times in the courtyard @school. Omg I thought I was pregnant. I would look in the mirror and stick out my belly and think "how will I tell my parents". Lol. I decided that I should make sure about it before I told my parents. I schools friend @ school about pregnancy and they told me the birds and bees.... Needless to say, I knew I was NOT pregnant at that point.
I asked a friend at school...
i had an abortion when i was 15. and to this day, i swear it's the smartest decision i ever made... i got knocked up literally, the first time i ever had sex. it was by a 'cool kid' at school, who was an abusive ass-hole in a relationship. luckily, i had friends who urged me to go get birth control pills, found out i was pregnant right away at the free clinic and had people around who walked me through the process. all of this without my mother knowing anything about it.
since then i have always been very careful and conscious about getting preggers. 15 years later and still no babies... if i had gone through with a pregnancy at that age, i don't know where i'd be, but i'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a good place!
at the high school i teach at, they have sex ed in 12th grade. fucking ridiculous and stupid.
my friend in high school had two abortions. she later went on to have 3 children as an adult.
i was looking at that photo and i thought, 'is she wearing a promise ring?'
it's hard for me to articulate this, but how sweet would it be if both sides could just work together? you know, like, a group of virgins, went to work/volunteer at planned parenthood and counseled all the people on the benefits of abstinence and birth control? if they provided counseling for people considering having sex, but also provided condoms on the way out...
i know it's dumb, that's what PP SHOULD be doing anyway, but hasn't, in my experience. it just seems like if they set up a 'virgin task force' of sorts, to really insure that both sides are being addressed, it would be a more effective system over-all and there would be less animosity across the board.
Ummm, she pried a rather large baby out of her tiny frame with a pair of scissors, smothered it, pommeled it about the head a bit, hid the corpse in her dirty laundry and left it there for 3 days? This is not the behavior of a mentally sound person. Her maturity is a factor, without a doubt, but does being 14 make these decisions any less... crazy? stupid? illogical?
